The Origin of the name of “Moalboal”

A legend told that a Spaniard was walking around the place and found himself close to the hot springs. He asked one of the locals what place was called. The local thought he was asking about the spring and replied “Bocal-Bocal”, which translates to bubbling water. Unfortunately, the Spaniard was hard-of-hearing and heard “Moalboal” and so the name was originated from.
